The President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Bello Shagari on Thursday commended the Independent National Electoral Commission on its effort towards conducting a fair, free and credible election.
Mallam Shagari made this disclosure in a statement released to the press.
The Leadership of the National Youth Council of Nigeria wishes to commend the Chairman Dr Mahmoud Yakubu and staffs of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for their level of commitment and preparation towards the forth coming general elections, and to express our utmost support as the authoritative voice and representatives of Nigeria Youths.
We are very much aware of the various challenges and pressure facing the commission but our assurance is that the umpire will his their best in all ramifications in ensuring that no external force is able to breakthrough the transparent reverend process.
We also wish to use this opportunity to urge the Nigerian Youth to come out in mass to vote the candidates of their choice. They should know that there is no such this as being “undecided”. If you cannot vote a party, vote a person, if you cannot vote both then vote a manifesto. But not voting is not an option.
We want to also remind the Nigerian Youth that after casting their votes, they should as well, protect them,protect the electoral offices and ensure that no one uses violence as an excuse to disrupt the process.
Bello Bala Shagari,
